Christian was referred to us by Westminster Jobcentre. He was Homeless at the time and had been spending time sofa surfing between friend’s houses. Christian had some experience of working in the hospitality sector but he was worried that kitchen roles didn’t pay him enough to live on in London. We had already referred candidates to a pop up restaurant we worked with. They were a Social Enterprise who particularly recruited candidates who had not had formal qualifications or experience but had the raw talent to be developed into Chefs.

They also paid about the London living wage at £11 per hour. We arranged for Christian to meet the company owner and accompanied him to the interview at which he was offered a trial shift on the spot and he went on to start work for them as a Kitchen Assistant.
